Blog Examines Need For U.S. Review Of Multilateral, Bilateral Aid

“Britain’s National Audit Office (NAO), akin to the U.S. Government Accountability Office or GAO, is applauding the Department for International Development’s Multilateral Aid Review,” Sarah Jane Staats, director of the Rethinking U.S. Foreign Assistance Program at the Center for Global Development (CGD), writes in this post in the center’s “Rethinking U.S. Foreign Assistance Blog.” She continues, “The United States would be wise to follow Britain’s lead and conduct its own multilateral (or even bilateral) aid review to inform tough budget decisions ahead,” adding, “Until the United States conducts its own review, the U.K. experience affirms that the Unites States should — at a minimum — keep pushing for better aid data, including reporting to the U.S. Foreign Assistance Dashboard and the International Aid Transparency Initiative’s (IATI) standards” (9/24).
